nasa space shuttle owners' workshop manual

digital minimalism by cal newport
also favourited by nitesh
Nitesh said: "It's really helpful for someone who feels they are spending lots of time on social media. It explains the tricks used by different social media platforms to keep a user engaged. It also tells of side effects of excess online presence/technology addiction, and provides strategies for 'digital de-clutter'."
the digital transformation playbook by david l. rogers
favourited by kareem
Kareem said: "Great book about digital in general, but more from a macro perspective."
